explain water cycle with a diagram????/
@ kavitabj12, @ Nausi,
Very good answer! Keep it up!
The cyclic process through which water circulates in the environment is called the water cycle. Evaporation is the process through which water is converted into water vapor. Heat or sunlight converts water into water vapor. Water is also emitted from the leaves of the plants through the process of transpiration. This water vapor in the atmosphere condenses to form clouds through the process of condensation.When enough water is condensed to form clouds, it falls down on the surface of the Earth in the form of rain, snow, hail, etc. This process is known as precipitation. The water that falls down as precipitation runs through the rivers and seeps underground. It also flows off the surface as surface run off to join low-lying water bodies. In this manner, water is circulated in the environment.
The water cycle is the known continuous movement of water on, above and below the surface of the Earth. Water can change states among liquid, vapor, and solid at various places in the water cycle. Although the balance of water on Earth remains fairly constant over time, individual water molecules can come and go, in and out of the atmosphere. The water moves from one reservoir to another, such as from river to ocean, or from the ocean to the atmosphere, by the physical processes of evaporation, condensation, precipitation, infiltration, runoff, and subsurface flow. In so doing, the water goes through different phases: liquid, solid, and gas.
Hope it helpzz...!!!
